Sexologists' vanishing act B v D K . M A V K A W K i i T V .. . , . · ^^ B y D K . M A X K A K F E K T Y Los Angeles Times Syndicate Q-"On Nov. 19-23. 1975, a two-day seminar on Human Sexuality' was to be held in the Mabel-Canton community by 20 knowledgeable resource persons secured by (he University ot Montana. This was lo be the first presentation of this type in a small community. "My question is this: If the program is so fabulous, why did Dr. Riehard Chilgren, who is the director of the Human Sexuality Program at the University ot Montana medical school, and Bill Seahloom, who'is a social worker in the Lutheran Social Service, pack up their films, material and people and leave when they learned (hat concerned adult citizens would be silting in at the Mabel-Canton High Sthool to hear and see the youth seminars with police protection and out-of-town news media?"--D.H., Mabel, Minn. A-How in blazes should I know? Maybe the sex boys are bashful. Maybe they were suddenly stricken with food poisoning. Maybe almost anylhing. How about it, gentlemen? This column is open'lu you if you want to explain your vanishing act. Q--"Can you tell us--has the subjunctive mood been recalled? Network news types say 'If I was . . .,' and so forth. Is it no longer correct to say 'were'? "Also, has the verb 'to be' finally taken an object, as in 'If it was me'? "Finally, can you comment upon the departure of Judge Douglas?"--J.R., Chattanooga, Tetin. A--From grammar lo geriatrics! Oh, well. 1--The subjunctive mood is like the law against marijuana; it's still-there, but nobody pays much attention to it. For the record, use "were" instead of was in wishes ("I wish I were dead") and in "if" clauses ("If I were king"). 2--Same problem. In the statement, "It was me," the word "me" should be "I." It's a predicate noun, and as such must agree in number and case wilh Ihe subject. "Me" is the objective case of the first-person pronoun, and should be used only when it receives some action, as in "Ho hit mo." 3--When Justice Douglas retired lale last year, he rendered Ihe most signal service received by the Supreme Court since il was first established and he reioiced the hearts of millions. Q--"Our school board finally decided that students graduating from senior high school must he able lo read and 'figger' at eighth grade levels. You know, being able to read at eighth grade level must be all right (and here's the joker) provided Ihe student can understand what he has just read. Ditto for Hie mathematical problems. Just to read words and not to know what (hey mean is an empty accomplishment, wouldn't .YOU sav? "Thank God, 1 u ent to school when you had to learn to read, write a legible hand and be able to do more than add two and two together. In fact, one had (o have a foreign language unless Ihe student was going to graduate from a so-called 'commercial course,' and even then mostol the students took two years of either Latin or German. U'e had to read books, too, and not Ihe sort of thing on the so-called reading lists today "Where will it all end? With a population of morons, easily led by demagogues?"--Mrs. L K I! Jacksonville, Fla. " A--So what's new? Seriously, being "able to read" means more than just mputhmg words. It means understanding them and getting sense out of sentences. Your school board is to be commended by pulling in some sort of minimum literacy requirement for high school graduation. Most schools have none at all from Day-ln to Day-Out Don't settle for less. You put your money into a savings account to earn interest. So doesn't it make sense to earn the highest rate you possibly can? At Dollar Federal, you earn a full 5'A% per annum the highest rate allowed by lav/ on FSLIC-insured passbook savings. And, because your interest is compounded, your return is even higher. Best of all, with a Dollar Federal Day-ln to Day-Out Evergreen Passbook, you can never lose interest. You earn every day from the day you save (Day-in) to the day you withdraw (Day-Out), regardless of how long or short a time your money remains in the account. 5'/4 % per annum interest, from Day-fn to Day-Out. Why should you take less? Switch to Dollar Federal today...where We've Got An Interest In You! DOLMR FEDERAL k LOAH ^SSOCMTION Milton Moskowitz explains how . . .

However, the best salesman in the world can'l sell a product Ibat's not Ihere. Chrysler has no subcompact model to confront Chcvetlc, Ford's Pinlo and t h e small imports. It's also burling al the lop end of (he lir.c, having discontinued ils Imperial model, (hereby leaving thai market segment to Cadillac and the Lincoln Continental. Chrysler sold less than a million cars to Americans in 1975. While it's true lhat it was a wretched year for the e n t i r e i n d u s t r y , Chrysler was hurt the most. Its share of Ihe market slipped lo 14.2 per ccnl, the lowest point in more than a decade. Chrysler has the red ink to show for ils troubles. II limped Ihrough Ihe first nine months of 1975 with losses mounling to S250 million. Contributing to that deficit was an inefficient lossridden operation in B r i l a i n , where Chrysler owns what used to be known as Rooles Motors (remember the H i l l m a n Minx?). Chrysler started out Ihe year wilh Ihis pledge in its annual report: "We repeat the assurances which have been given on many occasions that it is Ihe intention of Chrysler United Kindgom lo remain in business in Brilain as a manufacturing concern." Six months later Chrysler reneged. Chairman John J. Riccardo went to Britain and put his cards on Hie table: Either the British government lends a helping hand or Chrysler will shut down its British operations, throwing 25,000 persons out of work. Prime Minister Harold Wilson, an avowed socialist, had previously insisted that his government wouldn't "conlemplale the use of one penny of taxpayers' money" to aid Chrysler. However, faced w i t h Rieeardo's Ihreat, he caved in-and the British government is now shoring up Chrysler wilh cash and loans and loan DOWNTOWN SOUTHTOWN TROIWOOD EA5TOWN NORTHTOWN WESTOWN HAMILTON McCOOK \ GREAT LEGSPECTATIONS IN FASHION SAVINGS ONE HOUR VALIDATED PARKING WITH $5.00 PURCHASE TWO HOUR VALIDATED PARKING WJTH 510.00 PURCHASE OR MORE 99' exd ' in 9 assortment of fashion knee socks in le5 w " perfec "V ««nlu'ate your sports IL Bit S H O E GUI 111 HOURS Sunday 12:30 lo 5:30 p.m -- Dt'\t 10 ttn 10 9 p m E.O.M. , CLEARANCE SALE!
